Calling All Professionals!

Here’s a terrific way for you to get involved at Da Vinci!
We are always looking to expand our database of real-world connections for our teachers to draw from as they design their projects. If you would be willing to be available as a resource in any area in which you have experience/expertise, we would appreciate it if you would go to the link below and add your name to our experts database so that our teachers can contact you. (It may be as a guest speaker, a connection for a field trip opportunity, or to answer questions and point to resources about the field so that the projects and information are current and relevant.) Thank you!
